I pursued my agile journey with lot of passion and energy. As a scrum master my key achievment was creating a cross functional and self organizing team.Over the period of time I attended Agile user group meet- ups, Regional scrum gathering, Global Scrum Gathering,CSP retreat , Agile coaching retreat and through lots of conversations, discussions, readings and practical experience I enhanced my agile capability.I also got certified as CSPO.I was presented with a token of appreciation(Sheaffer Pen and an appreciation letter)by Senior corporate Vice President of Capgemini for talking on Agile in Capgemini's Event for Engagement managers.
